ice came to an end when he was killed in a u.s. raid last weekend so is this the beginning of the end for eisel or will the ultra violent groups survive its leaders demise that's our debate but 1st with a flurry of damning testimonies in an impeachment resolution clearing the house this week democrats in congress just turned up the pressure on donald trump is there any defense though of trump's now notorious phone call to the president of ukraine in which he asked him to dig up dirt on joe biden chris ruddy is c.e.o. of conservative news outlet news about and he's such a close friend of the president that he's become known as the trump whisperer and he says the whole impeachment process is a giant diversion this week's headlines from florida chris rock. chris robbie thank you for joining me on up front you're a close friend of donald trump you speak to him quite regularly how's trump doing right now as he gets closer and closer to becoming only the 3rd u.s.
11:23 pm
president to be impeached judging from his twitter feed he seems to be cracking under the pressure. i don't see that at all i think that the president is a guy that likes to tell you what he thinks and how he feels and he's been tweeting quite a bit for several years now so i wouldn't read into any any new tweets that he's doing i think he likes this is a guy that likes to walk on fire he can walk on fire and not even feel it he thrives on battle he thrives on these political controversies he's wired differently than the most of us i always say i think we can you know there's a fire is definitely what is it really is a fire well you know most of us if we see a fire we flee from it if we see a fight we flee from it he wants to run to it he likes to address problems or tackle problems or or confront issues not the style that maybe you and i have but it works for him and it's been very successful over
11:24 pm
a long period for him you say not to read much into his tweets just this week he tweeted about the impeachment hoax in capital letters which sounded very stable what was the last thing the president said to you about impeachment when you last spoke to him. well i don't discuss what the president tells me in private conversations but i can tell you that we both agree that the impeachment was a political act that this was started because the democrats are a year away from election they really have no candidate they can defeat him there's only a year left they have no evidence of a criminal act here none but of course impeachment is not about loral criminality it is a political act to begin with and you say there's no candidate who can beat him all the polls show that all of the major democratic candidates would beat him in an election tomorrow back in september 2 days after the impeachment inquiry was announced you said quote i think nancy pelosi is the smartest person in washington right now you said quote you're not sure this white house is prepared for this and
11:25 pm
that trump is being dismissive of the whole process why why is he taking it seriously given you've also described this process as quote a mortal threat and grave danger to his presidency i can't speak for donald trump but i don't want to presume even though we've been friends for a long time i don't want to presume that i'm here today speaking on his behalf i can only speak on behalf of chris ruddy newsmax the company i represent and i really think he's not taking it seriously. well i think he believes that the best way to deal with this is how he's dealt with other controversies to be very reactive and to comment and respond every time there's a criticism with him doing it and he's had quite a bit of success doing that in the behind i think it's a mistake this is in this in this particular case you think it's a mistake really from your comment right because it is sort of like before you've been alleged to have committed something now you're actually on trial you know
11:26 pm
there's an old saying that you should never be your own lawyer and that you'd be a fool to be your own lawyer and i think there's a case here that and i think the president's gotten a lot of bad legal advice from from a number of people in fact if you look at this ukrainian thing a lot of it starts because his legal counsel at the time rudy giuliani told him to push this issue of corruption investigating the button so it came from his lawyer. and i think that you know the president didn't dream this up himself and now we're dealing with this is a major political controversy and now an impeachment issue let me just ask it is according to a poll this week only 7 percent of american adults think it's ok to ask a foreign government for help with a u.s. presidential campaign are you one of them chris reddy i believe that it's inappropriate we should not be asking foreign governments to be involved in any political campaign or anything related to a political campaign so when donald trump does that do you think it's inappropriate
11:27 pm
that he doesn't. absolutely disagree now i do believe that as the chief law enforcement officer in the nation he can make a request like that i also believe that it's not a criminal act while i disagree with it and i think it's inappropriate or not proper as some people have testified on i agree that it's not proper and was a mistake but i don't think it's a criminal act and i don't think it's an impeachable you know how alan dershowitz a very famous liberal has said we don't impeach people for political since you know many winced and not many would dispute the dershowitz liberal label and he's been a trump defender on fox news for obama just kal come back to the impeachable vs criminal act in a moment just on the phone call the democrats are focusing their impeachment inquiry on this crucial july phone call between donald trump and the president of ukraine but was the call in which according to the white house's own call summary the ukrainian president asked for military aid and trump replied quote i would like you to do us a favor though and he then went on to ask ukrainian president to quote look into
11:28 pm
former vice president joe biden and his son trump says that phone call was quote perfect do you think it was perfect. i don't think anything said in that call was criminal or impeachable i would disagree with the assessment that it was perfect what was wrong with it but it's his assessment and he's allowed to make his assess in your view what was wrong i per my view on this is and it's always been the same i believe that you should never investigate someone lois's an evidence of a crime that's the due process legal system we operate under i believe it was very wrong and unjustified for there be a 2 year political investigation of the president on russia because an allegation was made i said it at the time that this was an allegation in search of a crime and that's not the way the system should work the president was victimized by this now he is saying hey they went investigated me why can't i investigate them when i think there is something fishy going on in the ukraine but what do you think
11:29 pm
i don't know this whole any evidence i'm just asking what do you think was wrong with the call you say it wasn't perfect what was wrong with it i think i think that joe biden's name should have never been raised in the call why. because he's a political opponent of the president he's running for office what's wrong with no evidence and as i said as i said there's no evidence that the bidens committed a crime it's unusual that his son would be running on the border been of gas coming out a lot of famous people have family members on board including you would have to like start investing you'd still have to start investigating half the congress. so my view on the president is this is a guy that's done an a plus job running the economy of the domestic side he's done a fantastic job on foreign policy in a lot of areas i think the report card is is yet to be completed but it's very good ok but just about to call just come out to the call i appreciate you're at my his record on other issues just on the call well you say what you say because it plays
11:30 pm
into everything else yes but bill clinton had a very good other domestic record in many ways didn't stop people in peace he did let me just ask you that to him from being a quick on that being calculated whether you commit a crime or not is irrelevant to the impeachment process but in terms of it being an impeachable offense a high crime or misdemeanor well we'll tell you it is because bill tell you that the u.s. ambassador to ukraine said last week contest to be the congress he thought it was totally inappropriate to tie the 2 things together he said it was crazy to make us military dependent on the presidential campaign the national security council's colonel alexander vinland said this week in what many describe as damning testimony he thought it was inappropriate how is that not an impeachable offense when his own people are saying that they thought this was the wrong thing to do to use the power of the presidency to help your own personal presidential campaign if that's not impeachable what is colonel vin min said that he felt the president did not act properly he never said that he acted illegally or criminally not a battle criminal that i wanted to jump in here we agree we don't know what i was
11:31 pm
trying to get away with you going to let him out of the crime i'm sorry to break this to impeachment has nothing to do with your being a criminal a felt kind of makes that earlier in the year and the competition's very clear that it does not require a criminal offense to be impeached in fact gerald ford once said a high crime and misdemeanor is. whatever the house defines it as well you know i hate to break the news to you but the ultimate jurors are the american public and they expect i believe and then the whole of the house of representatives is voting there's there is if you go across the country there's not broad based support for this impeachment more americans than not gris supported moving him from office just on the basis and then supports the argument that is but let's go back to colonel vin yes he said that it was he never said the president committed crime embassador taylor never spoke to the president he's saying that he was told by other officials who is a quid pro quo the president has denied that he ever withheld the aid in demand for this now i get you bill taylor is saying that he heard from other people that said the president may have wanted this sort of not that's for congress to investigate
11:32 pm
that's for the legal authorities to investigate. and i do think that would be very serious if that happen the president has said he did not require just to be clear let me clear chris for your perspective you believe that unless the president's committed a crime broken federal law he cannot be impeached that's your view. i believe that that should be the standard and that is that the standard that was the standard in the case of bill clinton or $100.00 jumps in the previous letter to the president as a result a lot of things. i think it's wonderful many that you're researching what the founding fathers have said but the constitution and the laws about based on what what people today say it is ok and how the representative who decided i crimes and misdemeanors if president obama in 2012 had asked ukrainians to find dirt on mitt romney or a romney child in exchange for u.s. military aid do you think the republicans were being ok with that they wouldn't even peter brock obama seriously i don't know if they would have impeach him it's a really big hypothetical but what if i don't want to go we know they got off to
11:33 pm
hillary clinton i'm being well see one of them talking about teaching hillary clinton for benghazi one of the things that the trump people in the president have alleged is that obama and his administration officials essentially asked the ukraine to find dirt on the president's campaign manager and to drop some of those bombshells in the middle of the election and that's now we don't know if that happened or not but they feel ledge that to have happened and that he also is alleged that he was spied on by the obama administration or potentially foreign intelligence agencies i don't know of a lot of our spying he lied about the tapping of phones that was a lie from the president's own justice department so there was no evidence of his why is being tapped as you know well again i haven't investigated all of it on the military public record all the department of justice says there was no topping of his phones that was a lie that's why he's never repeated it since that tweet in 2017 where he made that claim well again you should ask the white house about that i don't need to the department of justice has said that there was no tapping of the phones as
11:34 pm
a factor as. i have them on the show great ok but you were just making a claim i'm just correcting you it is not correct to say that i said that the president alleged that he was spied on and campaign officials allege they were split the problem i did not say whether it would have happened or not i repeat it of a full. allegation the problem with donald trump is he makes a lot of the repeated what the president has a letter saying it's true or not a green fine i'm saying well sure that it's. let me ask you this you say the trump makes allegations is the problem here if he makes so many false claims especially in defending himself he said that these. people testifying in congress he said that they never trump and by the way he calls never trump a human scum and he says that to bill taylor is a never trump a colonel alexander vincent is a never trump there's 0 evidence for that claim how could he be a never trump or if you look truly work in the administration. i do not know what the president knows about those individuals but what i know and what i've read
11:35 pm
about them are their exam proly exemplary public officials that have dedicated their life for service to america i'm not going to criticize them i do know pete people that know ambassador taylor they say he's a man of great integrity but they're not in the room for that i'm going to word but they're not never told that i was not at that event i'm not aware of what the president but i have no evidence that they're so it's a filter job motivated by anything by the so it's a full i have no evidence to accuse them of anything improper so. you would think so chris we agree you have no evidence i have no there's nobody has any evidence when you make a claim against someone without any evidence that's called a false would trump falsely accused of being never trouble about any evidence again i don't know. again you've got to ask the president these questions because i don't know what he knows and why he's making the allegation but from what i know i think that there are upstanding public servants and they saw something they didn't think was right but as far as you're aware that are inevitable because again i haven't
11:36 pm
investigated but i haven't seen anything that would if it's i mean come on this is a very old defense anytime someone says anything you don't have to have an investigation if i say today you're a democrat and you say you're not i can say well i don't know they haven't seen any evidence that's not how it works the burden is on me making the accusation to support my accusation trump doesn't do that he falsely smears anyone he doesn't like a scum as never trump has a deep state that's wrong you can say that you don't speak for trump what do you say that's well actually i don't think he ever called them but he called never trumpeting the no chris he will never let your scum and i call them never trump and so that by definition he's calling the hey i told you that i don't agree with everything the president does or says when i told you that i disagree with this particular characterization based on the information i know and i said if you really want to know the white house asked them i'm up there representative form a trump chief of staff john kelly said a few days ago that he told the. and before he quit the white house last year that if trump hired a yes man as his next chief of staff he'd end up getting impeached which is exactly
11:37 pm
what's happening now of course but what does it say about this president that so many people around him speak about him and to him as if he's a child that he needs hand-holding needs boundaries we need saving from himself you know he's been named the toddler in chief. well i've always found in my conversations with him i could be quite frank and he does take constructive criticism i don't work for him i'm not there at the white house so i'm not privy to the ongoing i have been told by people through a number of years that people give him a lot of feedback and disagreements privately he's very open to that privately i think what he disagrees is where he's has someone on his staff that they publicly disagree i think any leader would have a problem with that but i think he's he people forget he ultimately decides all of these things even if he even i'm sure john kelly gave him a lot of constructive criticism and the president decided many times against that
11:38 pm
advice i do think that the president is well served when he has advice and feedback i think congress has a vital role to play with but any but it doesn't it doesn't have to have a feed back his press secretary stephanie grisham said john kelly was quote totally on equipped to handle the genius of our great president this is chairman kevin stuff he's surrounded by sycophants i hope you're not one of them well. i'm a friend of his i support him i think he's doing a great job but i also will have disagreements with him and i'll let a member of the press and i will share those concerns both privately and publicly chris reddy thanks for joining me on outfront. glad to be here. after losing all of its territory and most of its fighters i sill is now also lost its leader so is the death of abu bakr or baghdad in the final blow although we can group manage to survive and continue to pursue its murderous and to prize to
11:39 pm
discuss this i'm joined by 2 experts in the field jessica stern a research professor at boston university and co-author of isis the state of terror and has a director at the center for global policy and co-author of ice is inside the army of tara thank you both for joining me in the arena somewhat donald trump announced by daddy's death on sunday in his usual way he boasted about it and he claimed that he had taken down someone bigger even than asama been large and you said afterwards in an op ed for the new york times that trouble might be right even if it's for the wrong reasons for once he might have a point why well because operationally can enough but. it can be more destructive far more destructive than the killing of osama bin laden because remember when the summer blood was kaluta than live in those 10 years after 911 he was already kind of far removed from there was going into pakistan in a compound exactly far removed from the day to day reality of that but he wasn't as his killer was not as destructive as the killing of today you're saying but he was
11:40 pm
controlling isis other data there was a man who was commanding the organization very closely he was meeting with his commanders and shape in the direction of the organization jessica you also wrote a new york times op ed this week and you said that while you recognize the importance of baghdad you to eisele you said quote jihadi leaders and even jihadi groups come and go the u.s. general in charge of central command seems to agree with you he said this week we don't see a bloodless future because unfortunately this ideology is going to be out there is this a case of an ideology being more important than the man or even the organization itself. i think so i mean i do think that the killing of bug was in fact very significant he was there really truly evil man and he killed so many people in such a gruesome brutal way but nonetheless there is there there are many groups they keep splitting they keep merging and it is an ideology that has been
11:41 pm
going on for quite some time and apparently. will continue for some time and you said this week that if the u.s. and its allies failed to put pressure on eisel now there was quote a risk of still quickly seizing on this vacuum in syria and iraq are you trying to say that donald trump should be sending more troops to syria in iraq rather than pulling troops out he should be intensifying the military effort against this group in favor of american troops stay in and syria the whole debate about whether american troops there were no not should not start now when the americans decided to intervene on behalf of whoever in iraq and syria to fight this organization that the end goal should have been. after the defeat of this organization and you stay there until you make sure that is holy to be defeated properly defeated and instead of 100 over these areas to the likes of the soul and so forth you make sure we see
11:42 pm
your this situation in 2 pieces jessica how many of the socio economic factors the sectarian divisions that allowed eisel to flourish in places like iraq and how much of those factors are still around today i mean we have in iraq right now protests against the government massive corruption security forces shooting people dead in the streets how worried are you that the conditions are still ripe for another eisel for eisel 2.013.0 i don't want to define it. i think they are right i think you know we know that some of the risk factors for terrorism include lots of young men who are unemployed or underemployed sectarian tension sectarian conflict sectarian war and yes we we see that used to work in government back in the day if you were advising donald trump today what would you be telling him to do. i'm i'm i'm not sure we're going to be able to defeat this movement but i do think though
11:43 pm
that we do need to be very careful about how we leave we yes maybe we need to leave over time we cannot solve all these problems clearly we often make them worse but if we leave in a precipitous way leaving our allies whom we've worked with very closely who are dependent on us completely vulnerable that strikes me as a grave error just like you just mentioned the rather depressing point they're imposing the she doesn't think a group like this or the ideology at least underpinning the group can ever be defeated to share the view. i think the main problem today is the conflicts jihadism an excuse thrive in 2 things conflicts authoritarianism in the region the problem with others though will always go after the disease of sort of the symptoms and leave the disease the disease is all the same the disease isn't just conflict it's the ideology it's radical islam to quote the president of united states where do you stumble not to be ideology comes after if you're fighting someone like the
11:44 pm
regime of bashar assad or someone like bashar assad then jihadism provides a way for recruitment the whole justification after the fight exact out of fights as well before you would say the dealing with the diseases dealing with the conflicts in the region precisely which which they have just would you share that view i do actually i'm very much of the view that ideology is often a a branding device more than then it is something emerging it's not the reason for the problem it's that it is the branding for a fight. has much more to do with with the underlying. sectarian tensions and authoritarian regimes what i'm suggesting however that i don't believe the us can defeat this proper fix this problem i. it's quite clear that we. we often make things worse and. this
11:45 pm
week announced a new leader a replacement for baghdad who they're calling the new emir. what do you think his life expectancy is looking like right now well the source for we don't know anything about this the his nickname or the. doesn't really narrow things down very small number of people nor the people at the top of the helm of isis who selected him i don't think anybody within or below them would know the iraq is probably would take some time to know who he is and that's when you start to trace them down and how worried should people at home be that in the wake of baghdad's death is it going to hurt the group and they get undermined and they kind of lose more all or is there a sense of we're going to take revenge attacks we've lost our territory lost our leader we're going to mount attacks in paris talk or new delhi or washington d.c. i think most certainly they would try to wage a campaign of revenge his decapitation is not the end of fall for isis obviously
11:46 pm
they were going as a nation has been there before twice actually a very critical time 20062010. and they survived the other think with the announcement this week of the 2 the new emir and his spokesperson it seems like they handle the transition very well and it really depends on the organization itself and whether the americans can go after these leaders more and more and keep the pressure but not know we'll leave it there just has an outsider thank you both for joining me in the arena that's our show up front will be back next week. in the land of the free the cost of medication is killing people this particular pill is going to be anywhere from $800.00 to $1100.00 and citizens are desperate entire bus load of americans coming to wal-mart in canada to buy insulin because just where they can afford it faultlines investigates the spiraling costs of
